MASON CITY, Iowa (AP) - A 33-year-old woman has been sent to prison for starting a fire in a Mason City apartment building.

Jacque Paulsen was given 10 years in prison at her sentencing on Monday. She’d pleaded guilty to a reduced arson charge after making a deal with prosecutors.

Investigators say the fire was set April 21 inside an unoccupied apartment, but there were other occupants in the building. No injuries were reported.

Paulsen also was fined $1,000 and ordered to pay $1,000 restitution to the apartment building owner.
